. america's economy was built on free market enterprise. it was built on these principles that allowed the private sector to grow and thrive and prosper and for our families to keep more of what we earn. where we are now in america in the last 11 months is seeing this reversal of those principles that were applied to build up our economy. all of a sudden we are thinking it is okay to grow debt in our country. it is okay to borrow from countries we will soon be so beholding to. it is okay to print money out of thin air and think everything is going to magically work out. fundamentally, everyone is equal in america, everyone has equal opportunity to earn, produce and build. the fundamentals of a strong economy have got to be applied again as they were like i said in the 80s when reagan faced a worse recession than today let's learn from that piece of american history and apply the same solutions. >> what about health care reform? i assume you want some health care reform, maybe i'm wrong. do we need health care reform? >> of course we do. rising costs are crushing some of our small busin
the public whether it is an america or britain or any other country in the world engaged in a balton that and then when there is an international crisis,-- and the only other thing i would say is that i think it is ultimately a point, whether people like me or the diplomats in the military in the end but ultimately they do finally have to make decisions, and i hope as a result of the totally understandable remaining divisions and difficulties over the policy in iraq that we don't put a future generation of leaders in the position where the really, really, really difficult decisions can be taken. >> thank you. i would like to thank our witness and in particular for agreeing to stay on for a much longer session then we had originally foreseen and thank you to everyone here in the brehm both this morning and this afternoon. i would like just to say a brief word about tomorrow. we are going to let gatt other important aspects of the ministerial and professional decision-making process on the rack and use resource in the capability of government departments to deliver their policy objecti
. if democrats didn't share america's economic urgency in my opinion we would deserve to lose more seats. however, that is not the case. when i look at the members of our caucus, i see the urgency every day. in the debate, in the eyes of our members, in their stories about their constituents every weekend. as they talk to them throughout their communities. as we look -- as we took our oaths a year ago, we knew that things weren't right in america. we saw in the lives of millions of americans out of work. and the families forced to leave their homes and the elderly down in the security of their retirement after lives of hard work. we saw it when small businesses laying off workers in the face of falling sales and rising healthcare costs and we knew things were not right when our middle class were running just to standstill for a decade and we knew something wasn't right in a political culture that thrived too long on easy choices. on the philosophy of deficits don't matter. publicly or personally, entitlements, wars and tax cuts for the privileged all paid for with borrowed cash. to be paid back b
that this is matched by a historic effort that extends beyond our government, because america has no greater resource than the strength and the compassion of the american people. we just met in the oval office, an office they both know well, and i'm pleased that president george w. bush and president bill clinton have agreed to lead a major fund-raising effort for relief. the clinton/bush haiti fund. on behalf of the american people, i want to thank both of you for returning to service and leading this urgent mission. this is a model that works. after the terrible tsunami in asia, president bush turned to president clinton and the first president bush to lead a similar fund. that effort raised substantial resources for the victims of that disaster, money that helped save lives, deliver aid and rebuild communities. and that's exactly what the people of haiti desperately need right now. every day that goes by, we learn more about the horrifying scope of this catastrophe -- destruction and suffering that defies comprehension, entire communities buried under mountains of concrete, families sleeping in th
behind america. but i was very aware from the early stages of this that also the american mind set had changed dramatically and frankly mine had as well, when i talk to other leaders particularly in europe i didn't get the same impression really. and so one thing i was anxious to do because we put together a coalition of afghanistan was to put together a coalition again to deal with saddam hussein and therefore the united nations route was then just important for all sorts of political reasons, legal reasons and so on, it was to do with the internal politics of the u.k.. it was also important to me because i didn't want america to feel that it had no option but to do it on its own. >> are you saying to me that that was the kind of agreed policy with which he went to crawford on the eve of crawford? is that what you intended to achieve at crawford? >> what we intended to achieve was to get a sense from the americans as to what they wanted to do and this would be best done between president bush and myself and really to then get the sense how our own strategy would have to evolve in the

to an excellent panel that's assembled here. and we thank our friends and colleagues from the new america foundation, which has been helping us put this event together and some subsequent ones still to come. i won't introduce the panel now. i would, however, like to say to congressman eelsen what a pleasure it is to see him back here at brookings. he has been a frequent visitor here, and we're the better for it. we look forward to listening to you this afternoon. i don't think i need to go on at too much length about jim's background. >> good. >> we'll just stop right there. he's come to talk to us about fencing this afternoon, a sport from his youth which he's taken up once again in middle age. >> early middle age. >> right. >> but in addition to being an athlete and an owe limpion, he has also been of course a global public servant. he was that in his capacity as the president of the world bank and then in 2005-2006, he was the special envoy for the quartet working on the middle east in general and the issues and challenges of gaza in particular. subsequent to that, as a brookings trust
columnist, cal thomas, jim pinkerton fellow new america foundation and news day columnist, ellen. i'm jon scott, fox news watch is on right now. the year 2000, the new millennium, the beginning of a new decade of news and news coverage. the y2k bug was the big story of 2000, it quickly became a big bust. u.s. agents seize refugee elian gonzalez and after a long standoff sent him back to cuba. the u.s.s. cole attacked by terrorists in yemen, 17 american sailors were killed. figuring out the winner of the presidential election delayed due to ballot snafus in florida. the u.s. supreme court took on the issue, made a decision and 36 days after voters had gone to the polls, democratic presidential candidate al gore conceded the election to his republican challenger, texas governor george w. bush. he would become the nation 43rd president. jim, elliss, if you had to sum up that 2000 election fiasco in a few words, how would you roux describe it? >> i would say the reporters all voted for al gore in 2000, but they didn't like him. they liked bush much better so bush perversely got pretty good pr
of this country to elect an african-american, the 44th president of the united states of america. reverend wheeler mentioned the inauguration. last year's election. on the heels of that victory over a year ago there were some who suggested that somehow we entered into a post-racial america. all those problems would be solved. there are those who argue that because i had spoke of a need for unity in this country that our nation was somehow entering into a period of post-partisanship. that didn't work out so well. there was a hope shared by many that life would be better from the moment that i swore that oath. of course, as we meet here today one year later we know the promise of that moment has not yet been fully fulfilled. because of an era of greed and irresponsibility that sewed the seeds of its own demise because of persistent economic troubles unaddressed through the generations. because of a banking crisis that brought the financial system to the brink of catastrophe, we are being tested in our own lives and as a nation as few have been tested before. unemployment is at its highest level in m

the thousands of flights into america each day, domestic and international. there is of course no foolproof solution. as we develop new screening technologies and procedures, our adversaries will seek new ways to abate them. >> we will later in this news hour do a partial inventory of the republican response to mr. obama's remarks. but mr. obama anticipated them as well. with the right wing demanding what even president bush opposed that guantanamo prison remain open, demanding an end to things like due process and the presumption of innocence, the very bedrocks upon which america was founded, mr. obama pushed back firmly and declaratively refusing to let terrorists or those aiding their cause by stoking fear define the nation. >> here at home we will strengthen our defenses but we will not succumb to a siege mentality that sacrifices the open society and liberties and values we cherish as americans. because great and proud nations don't hunker down and hide behind walls of suspicion and mistrust. that is exactly what our adversaries want and so long as i am president, we will never hand th

resistance to revealing to you, to myself, to anybody, to everybody in america, the e-mail traffic at aig? not just at the moment of the bailout, but over the past ten years? >> it's very clear that a lot has to do with the general secrecy of the fed. this is something that ron paul and other members of congress have complained about for years, that this entity can put trillions of dollars of american taxpayer money at risk, and they do so with a considerable amount of secrecy. in this case, they very definitely crossed the line by telling aig not to disclose -- aig being a less secretive, public company, and a company that you and i now own 100% of balls of the hundreds of billions of dollars we poured into it. >> what can viewers do, people who obviously don't serve in congress, don't have a cable show but have the same conversations you and i are having? and feel helpless. they obviously feel like the more they learn about it, the more frustrated they become. because they don't feel like they can do anything about it. what can folks help you to get more information? >> the most importa
bill: this is a fox news alert, we have new videotape coming into "america's newsroom" of a passenger jet that crashed early this morning, rescue crews, desperately trying to find any survivors after an ethiopian airlines plane caught fire and crash going the mediterranean sea, 90 people on board at that time good morning, everyone, i'm gregg jarrett in for bill hemmer here in "america's newsroom". martha: i'm march contramaccallum, the crash on this -- the investigation on this crash is on this hour. no survivors have been found as of yet. gregg: the plane was headed to ethena's capitol and family awaits word on relatives and what caused that plane to crash. greg, are there any signs of survivors? >> >> reporter: nothing yet, gregg and martha, but you noted a frantic search for survivors, the fear is all on board that airplane died off the crash of beirut, near lebanon. i'm told the u.s.s. ramage, an american destroyer that happened to the in port in beirut is involved in the search, as well as a t-13 maritime search and rescue aircraft, also of american denomination.
in america. the people of massachusetts spoke and spoke loudly. one concern i know a imin of you had about the outcome of this election would be whether the new senator would be seated. i'm convinced now that no gamesmanship will be played by the other side with regard to future votes in the senate. senator jim webb, made it clear he will not participate in any additional health care votes prior to senator brown being sworn in. and i noticed that elected officials in massachusetts who were principally responsible for certifying election after earlier saying take up to two weeks, indicated it could be as soon today. i don't believe the kind of thing we've seen on full diswith the corn husbander kick back, the louis purchase, the gator aide, drafting the bill behind closed doors, i think majority has got the message and no more gamesmanship here. no more lack of transparency. let's honor the wishes of the people of massachusetts and move forward with policy. with our policy debates. with that, let me call on our, outstanding chairman of the national republican senatorial committee who played
>>> tgif. good morning, america, on this friday, january 8th. i'm robin roberts. >> and i'm george stephanopoulos. in the news this morning, president obama faces the country after that christmas day terror plot. and he takes the blame. >> ultimately, the buck stops with me. >> with the suspect set to appear in court today for the first time, we'll ask rudy giuliani if the president is doing what he needs to do. >>> could the winter blast get any worse? from 52 below in the north. to snow in florida this weekend. sam's still in the middle of it all. >>> missed signals. we'll tell you how the snow is causing havoc with a new kind of traffic light now being used across the country. how it's putting drivers at risk. >>> and last laugh? nbc appears set to shuffle jay leno out of primetime and back to his old time. >> it's often my experience. nbc only cancels you when you're in first place. so, we're fine. >>> and good morning, everyone. we do have several, major stories we're following this morning. >> we do. president obama saying yesterday, very clearly, we're at war with the terror
immediately. jobs here in america. we think that's very important. it also tries to help states so they're not laying off teachers and policemen and firemen. we think that's very important as well. let me say something. i did a little -- i get a little confused, and perhaps these facts are not well-known to you, but i thought i'd remind you of these facts. we pursued an economic program that your party put forward from 2001, 2003 on for eight years. now, while the people gave us the majority in the house and senate in 2006, obviously president bush threatened to or did in fact veto any changes that we made in economic policy . that economic policy, which you were a very strong supporter of and your party was a very strong supporter of, you continue to mention jobs. so i want to make sure you know these statistics. in the last three months of the brucks under the economic poll -- bush administration under the economic policies that not only did you pursue then but you still want to pursue because in fact the proposals that you have made essentially mirror the proposals that were made in
you will not be foresaken, you will not be forgotten. in this, your greatest need, america stands with you. gwen: a terrible earthquake. >> this is a major catastrophe for haiti. gwen: a devastating death toll. >> we need more people down here! gwen: uncertainty everywhere. >> the most urgent thing we can do now is get them through the next week to 10 days. we have to find the living and the dead and we have to take care of both. gwen: can haiti, plagued by decades of deprivation, survive? in washington, the president talks tough to bankers paying themselves big bonuses. >> we want our money back and we're going to get it. gwen: but will taxpayers still pay in the end? and in massachusetts, a potential political upset that could undo ted kennedy's legacy. covering the week, helene cooper of "the new york times," doyle mcmanus of "the los angeles times," deborah solomon of "the wall street journal," and dan balz of "the washington post." plus, a special report from abc's martha raddatz on the ground in haiti. >> celebrating 40 years of journalistic excellence. live from our nation'
, massachusetts, dee dee on the independent line. caller: good morning, american. -- america. i'm an independent who voted for scott brown and i responded to his message pretty much of stop the madness. what i'm seeing now is really frightening me because as soon as he won, you saw the big machines starting to move into place -- the media machines, political machines. you see late night talk-show host trashing him and making fun of him, and those clips being replayed over and over. give the man a chance. i think the people of massachusetts responded to this message and as soon as his message, stop the madness, got him elected now you see people putting spin. the republican leadership trying to exploit his win, the democratic leadership reviling his win and trying to explain it away. you see all the pundits -- it letterman, olbermann, and the republican side, glenn beck, making fun of them. give him a chance, i am pleading with people. thank you so much. go, scott brown. host: "the new york times" reported that john boehner has hired a former top adviser to the house republicans in 1994, barry ja

cain fights now. a battle to save america. save our jobs. john mccain leads the charge to slash government spending, bloated bureaucracies, and ridiculously unaffordable ideas like government-run health care. >> president obama is leading an extreme left-wing crusade to bankrupt america. i stand in his way every day. if i get a bruise or two knocking some sense into heads in washington, so be it. i'll keep fighting for jobs and economic growth for arizona as long as i'm in the senate. >> john mccain is arizona's last line of defense. character matters. >> now, that's what he's saying. but here's what i'm hearing. perhaps no battle in our lifetime is more vital than the one john mccain fights now. the battle for his job. he's been rejected by the american elector at twice now. forget them. they're dead to him. arizona is the only place that deserves john mccain. and in this election, it's just john mccain, raw. there's no hockey mom running around saying she could see russia from her house. the original maverick is man enough to admit it. that was a dumb call. and since his party doesn't se
to the people of haiti and the world. in these difficult hours america stands unighted with the people of haiti, who have shown such resilience and we'll help them to recover and to rebuild. >> after their meeting with president obama the two former presidents agreed to "meet the press" in a joint interview about haiti and only haiti. >> let me start asking you president bush what is your biggest concern right now? >> my biggest concern is the haitian people have security, water and food. >> those are big. >> they are. the president briefed us about military efforts to get food and water to the people and surging a lot of material, it's going to take a little time to get it there. but i came away confident it's going to happen. >> president clinton, the basics are so important. >> this is about water, food, medical supplies and care, and shelter. secure shelter. i have protection concerns but we were just told in the briefing that 40% of the haitian police force has signed back in, volunteered. a lot of them don't have weapons or uniforms but the american military is working closely with the u.
and the democratic party. and i think it is a really good thing that america is waking up, that they are seeing through this because of the tyrannical dictatorships, the way that nancy pelosi and harry reid are trying to push through this against the will of the american people. but if mr. brown loses the election, jamming down health care down the throats of the american people is nothing compared to what they are going to do. they will find some crisis, some way that they will continue to keep the power and before we know it we will have a hammer and sickle for a flag over the white house. host: on the republican line, joining us from san francisco. caller: good morning. it is a wonderful morning when we can have massachusetts, a historical state, help us, the american people to fight back what we see here. we have been so betrayed, we feel. the nation is in a mess. we all know what happened when we went into this financial crisis. we know that president clinton put out a lot -- that he change what existed in the banking system. and there he put in larry summers to deregulate everything. that
assistance we're providing is absolutely essential. we need this connection between yemen and america and the brits if we're going to contain the threat. the good thing about what john brennan said this morning, it appears we're all on the same page. we recognize the threat. we're committed to enhancing the intelligence capabilities. and our offensive capability to deal with this. the pressing issue coming up over the next few months is how do we deal with americans who have joined al qaeda and are now part of the machine that wants to attack the united states? >> home grown terrorists. you raised several issues there. let me stay on yemen for a moment. last week, senator, you said that yemen could turn into tomorrow's war. expand on that a little bit. how hot a war are you talking about? do you foresee american forces? would you call for american forces? >> let me explain the comment. senator collins and i were in yemen with colleagues in august. one of the amecan personnel said to us, and i thought quite wisely, iraq is yesterday's war. afghanistan is today's war. if we don't act pr
